Manuel Muzzu

Who am I ?

About Me

I’m Manuel Muzzu, Born in Sardinia, island in the middle of mediterranean sea (Italy) on 06/25/1967, I fell in love with a bass guitar when I was 12 years old. Graduate on M.I. Los Angeles in 1994 and U.M. Rome in 1997. I have an handicap on my right hand due to a mistake by the doctors when i was six years old. That prevent me to use all fingers and wrist. In effort to overcome my disability I worked hard to find my own technique to play like a normal player, just because passion is much stronger than destiny. I’m a musician, composer, session and studio player with over 25 years of experience and many musical collaborations, including “Tazenda” live band, Monica Naranjo, Tom Porcaro and many others. My songs are inspired by all different sounds I manage to extract from my basses in a different jazz styles. Basically I like to play the music I’m interested in, starting by jazz (fusion jazz, smooth jazz, latin jazz, rock jazz, funk jazz, electronic jazz) where the lead instrument is the bass guitar. You can call it Fusion, maybe it is.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because...i love jazz I was first exposed to jazz...when i was 14 years old listening weather report's album "Heavy Weather" I met [musician name]...many many many The best show I ever attended was...the next The first jazz record I bought was..."8:30" Weather Report My advice to new listeners...Try to listen and imagine that what you hear is played by someone who has a handicap on his right hand (I'm a Bassplayer) Or whatever else you have in mind. Every music is good for someone, you can decide if is good for you or not, but only after listen, listen all music you can and decide what is good for you.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
